Tyreek Hill Fantasy Football News 2019

11:10am EDT 10/13/19

Chiefs WR Tyreek Hill (clavicle) is active for today’s game against the Texans. He received medical clearance late this week but was reportedly still dealing with soreness in that injured shoulder. Hill obviously comes with more risk than usual this week — but he still boasts week-winning upside.

Chiefs WR Tyreek Hill (clavicle) will play against the Texans today, according to NFL Network's Ian Rapoport. Hill was able to maintain his cardio while rehabbing from this injury, and we haven't heard anything about him being on a snap count today. You'd need to be loaded at WR to consider benching Hill in season-long fantasy leagues.

ESPN's Adam Schefter hears that Chiefs WR Tyreek Hill (clavicle) has a "serious chance" to play against the Texans today. The team will reportedly wait until pregame warmups to make a final decision. We'll get Hill's official status around 11:30 am. He'll come with elevated risk but would be nearly impossible to bench in season-long fantasy leagues if active.

Update: NFL Network's Ian Rapoport confirms that Hill has received medical clearance to play but adds that he dealt with soreness in that shoulder this week. Hill is a game-time decision.

Chiefs WR Tyreek Hill (clavicle) will be a game-time decision for Sunday's tilt with the Texans. He practiced all week, but it sounds like he's still awaiting final medical clearance. The good news is that we'll get Hill's official status by noon ET on Sunday. If he's active, he'll return to must-start status. The nature of his injury means he should be a full-go once he's cleared. If Hill is out, Kansas City will roll with WRs Demarcus Robinson, Byron Pringle and Mecole Hardman.

NFL Network's Ian Rapoport hears that Chiefs WR Tyreek Hill (clavicle) is "very close" to returning and that there's "optimism" that he's able to play against the Texans this weekend Hill is set for another scan on that injured clavicle on Friday. If that comes back clean, he'll be cleared to play on Sunday. Check back this afternoon for another update.

Chiefs WR Tyreek Hill (clavicle) remained limited in Wednesday's practice. He was limited in practice all last week before sitting out the loss to the Colts. As far as we know, Hill is still awaiting final medical clearance. We'll get another update on his status tomorrow.

Chiefs WR Tyreek Hill (clavicle) is out for Sunday night's game against the Colts. He returned to practice this week, though, and has a shot to play Week 6. Sammy Watkins, DeMarcus Robinson and Mecole Hardman will again serve as Kansas City's top 3 WRs vs. Indianapolis.

Chiefs WR Tyreek Hill (collarbone) will return to practice on Wednesday, HC Andy Reid said. Reid didn't say how much Hill would do or if he has a shot to play against the Colts this weekend. We'd still bet against Hill playing in that one but will continue to keep a close eye on the situation.

ESPN's Adam Schefter reports that Chiefs WR Tyreek Hill (collarbone) could be back by Week 6. He's scheduled for imaging tests on his injured shoulder this week to check on his progress. Schefter notes that the Chiefs "will not rush him," but Hill's return shouldn't be too far off now. He looked good running routes in pre-game warmups today.

Chiefs WR Tyreek Hill is expected to miss 4-6 weeks with his collarbone injury, according to NFL Network's Ian Rapoport. That timetable would have him back as early as Week 6 or as late as Week 8. Kansas City's bye isn't until Week 12. We'd hang on to Hill in all fantasy leagues. He should return to WR1 status as soon as he's back on the field. WR Sammy Watkins and TE Travis Kelce will get target boosts with Hill out. We like rookie Mecole Hardman to be the 2nd most productive Chiefs WR, with Demarcus Robinson as the #3.

Chiefs WR Tyreek Hill (clavicle) "will likely" avoid IR, according to the Kansas City Star's Sam Mellinger. The report adds that there's "no defined timetable quite yet" for Hill's return. He's still looking at a multi-week absence, but the IR would have cost Hill at least 8 weeks. We'll continue to keep an eye on his status.

NFL Network's Ian Rapoport hears that the Chiefs are still evaluating WR Tyreek Hill's injury, with "options ranging from missing a few games to IR/designated to return." The latter move would knock Hill out until at least Week 10. We'll stay on top of the situation, but Chiefs WRs Mecole Hardman and Demarcus Robinson are both worth adding off waiver wires this week.

Chiefs WR Tyreek Hill does not need surgery on his injured shoulder but is expected to miss "a few weeks," ESPN's Adam Schefter reports. Chiefs head trainer Rick Burkholder revealed that Hill is dealing with a sternal clavicular joint injury. It sounds like fantasy owners should prepare to be without him until at least Week 5. Hill's absence elevates WR Sammy Watkins to the top of the Chiefs' depth chart. Demarcus Robinson and rookie Mecole Hardman are next in line and are worth speculative adds in deeper fantasy leagues.
